Default What models are available for Kolibri?

I have looked around and found several models for the Lambert Kolibri but many of them are very hard, if not impossible, to get hold of. Models in this category include the Twinjet and Schreiner All-in and Viperjet.

What models have people flown with the Kolibri that are readily available to purchase?

OK, not much here. As and when I find suitable models I will add to the list.

The first one is the Pterodactyl; now on Version 4 with canards. Available in single and twin fin versions for either turbine or electric. It is pretty small and I'm sure I read that one with a GPS logger has been clocked at 314km/h[X(] Not particularly cheap but there are some things (like the integral fuel tank) that I really like. They are quick to reply to emails and all my questions were answered straight away.

I'm having the same problem - looking for a nice kolibri model. The twinjet flies fine though

Some friends of Martin Lambert started a few years back a website for the same reason, but never completed it :

My friend is building a composite jet suitable for Kolibri or P20, it should be available from Jetpower and will be on display there too.....

Possibly on the pre-order side, will be around 6-8 weeks before we can finalise price etc.
It will be fully composite, glass/herex sandwich, carbon/balsa end grain/carbon formers. There are also retracts being made for this jet.
